On the other hand, Gujarat Lions has placed the bottom of the table losing 6 out of the 8 matches. Perhaps it stems from a "been there, done that" feeling.
The promising part in the present situation for RCB is that they had a similar situation previous year as well. The third spot is still retained by the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad followed by Rising Pune Supergiant who are now at the fourth spot. Out of seven matches, Gujarat has managed to win only two.
Gujarat Lions: 135/3 in 13.5 overs.
History though is of little outcome in this league. Supergiant motored to 67 at the halfway mark, but RCB had the game in control at this stage. But RCB are a bit of a conundrum.
Tye picked up two wickets from his first two balls to get rid of Chris Gayle and Travis Head to dent Bangalore and put them in a spot of bother at 22/3 in 4.2 overs. It was a rare instance of RCB displaying their batting might in unison.
The Lions are up to six points now, and they have a theoretical 12 points still available to them.

That the Lions are still searching for a winning combination was further exemplified by their promotion of Ishan Kishan to the top of the order as they began their chase of 135 for victory. With no IPL team having ever successfully defended a total of 150 or less in a completed innings at the Chinnaswamy, the best RCB could have done was pick up early wickets and hope Lions went into a shell. They revealed there is a lot of masti behind the scenes. He was well supported by South African spinner Imran Tahir as the RPS bowlers seemingly did as they pleased.

Kohli was out for 10, fellow opener Gayle for 8, and de Villiers run out for 5. In an already horror season, this was RCB's lowest point. Irfan Pathan might also make a comeback in the team.
